The other day I decided to make it an Old School Kite Flying Day. Remembering the Good not that Old Days.

Pulling some basic tricks from an Prism E2. Premier Trick and Track, New Tech Kites Pyro Xs.

I know these kites are not the oldest but were the ones around when I started with stunt Kites

Thanks Ko.

There are a lot of old school kites out there that are great flyers.

I wouldn't say one kite is better than another. Each Kite is design with a specific style in mind (I call it the kite Personality).

Each kite pilot likes one style more than another. At the end of the day, a kite pilot will be happy flying a kite that matches his personality.  Smiley

I'm more of a slack line trick pilot. My wind range is 3 - 8 mph. That's why most of my kites are for low winds.

It is a very 'grabby' kite though, lots of places to snarl your lines.

Know the feeling; my Cerfs-Volants Azur Tandems are like that  Cheesy

Thanks for the video skb. A few tricks still remain the same but stunt kites in the 90's were way different to what is done today. Kite Building Materials has improved too.

E2 is "old school"??  I don't think so.  Let's talk Skynasaur.  Let's talk Trilby.

Most of old school kites had Battens The E2 has them. The E2 in no longer in production.  and I was referring to kites I have flown too. That's why I considered the E2 leans more towards the Old School Kites (even when we still have the E3). The E2 was and still is a Great Kite I Learned my first Tricks with it. I even like it better than the E3.

Thanks

I was flying my mid '90s Spectra Sport Trix this afternoon.
Some call it the 'poor man's W.A.S.P.' but its trick repertoire is much more complete.
Nice Old Skool tipstabs and side slides, with an obnoxiously loud nose, but it will also roll-up, flic-flak, Jacobs Ladder and more.
It is a very 'grabby' kite though, lots of places to snarl your lines.  Lips sealed
